closed Le Violon d'Ingres

The show

Curated by Chiara Parisi

Le Violon d’Ingres is an exhibition that pays tribute to the strength of Villa Medici’s heritage, with the desire to unite the art of the past with the contemporary one, in creating audacious and unexpected dialogues.

Le Violon d’Ingres is an exhibition that was developed through a dialogue between the curator and the artist Christian Boltanski, an exceptional exhibition on the transversal and radical practices of great personalities of all times.

Centered on the figure of Victor Hugo with a rigorous and dazzling selection of his drawings – whose importance and inspiration for many contemporary artists become more and more significant – the exhibition presents in the same time the passions and the obsessions, less known by the public, of extraordinary figures such as Guillaume Apollinaire, Antonin Artaud, Samuel Beckett, Jean Cocteau, Sergueï Mikhailovich Eisenstein, Federico Fellini, Jean Genet, Sacha Guitry, Franz Kafka, Pierre Klossowski, Carlo Levi, René Magritte, Nelson Mandela, Louise Michel, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Arnold Schönberg, and contemporary artists: Etel Adnan, Chantal Akerman, Christian Boltanski, Chris Kraus, Pierre Guyotat, Abbas Kiarostami, David Lynch, Patti Smith and Robert Wilson.
